I'm not quite sure what you mean exactly. You could have several ASIC mining units all connected to the same network and build your own mining farm. It would cost you a lot of money depending on how much electricity costs where you live. Mining for most people is dead. If you have the startup funds however, you could still mine altcoins and then sell the for BTC.

Signatures? How about learning a skill... I don't care either way. Everybody has to make a living somehow.

No. First, miners aren't linked together in the way you mean. Sure, they have mining pools of their own, but each mining pool provides its own parameters to its miners.

Second, ASIC miners are designed to solve a VERY specific problem. Most are designed for a block header of a very specific length (80 bytes AFAIK) to be hashed twice, with one part of that block header incrementing, and the output being fed to a comparator to the target. They can only solve one problem, which is the problem they're already solving. Find nonce and extranonce such that block header containing transactions and coinbase address of the pool in question, when hashed twice using SHA256, has a value less than a fixed target value.

Of course, they do solve one other problem. They heat rooms.
